Determining the Value of a Seeburg Jukebox

The Seeburg Corporation manufactured jukeboxes for over 30 years, introducing the first jukebox to store and play 50 records. They went out of business in the 80s. Some jukeboxes have retained value, depending on their condition.

These machines vary widely in value and the value fluctuates from year to year so older sales or estimates may not apply today's market. The last sale that I found of a similar Seeburg was for $1300 so why not try and get a current value.

According to the Chicago Tribune, this model is very popular. The article was written in 2000 and the high price was $3000. I'm sure it has only increased in value.

I have a STD-3 Sunstar 1976 by Seeburg jukebox. I can't find the value of it on the internet. Can you tell me what it is worth? It has got minor scratches on it and the paint is chipped off on the back. Does this lower the value? Is it rare?

One in good working condition is worth $550. I would expect $50-75 less for the cosmetic flaws

These are worth at least $1500, and some are considerably more. Look on eBay for a couple of months to see the range.

If this is in excellent working condition many people are asking 2500 to 2900 dollars for one. I think this is an excellent price and it all depends on the condition of yours.

My best suggestion is to find a person or place that will buy it from you to sell.

This particular model is all over the price in value from $200-$1500, and there are so many variables that only an experienced seller can tell you where yours is in the span. The value is also location dependent. In some places there are a glut of these so the value is low. Where there are few, the value goes up.

Collectors want all original parts, the manual, original music etc. Any deviation drops the value. Also dropping the value is smells (like if it came from a bar and smells like smoke--that drops the value, cracks in the glass, nicks on the case).

You don't mention where you are located so I will give you a place I like to window shop to start to find a pro to sell it for you:

www.pinballrebel.com/.../ss160.htm

If you scroll to the bottom, there is a line about buying these items.

Post back how you do with yours! There is still a market in some places and there is always a market if you wanted to disassemble it and sell it off for (tested) parts. People want the original parts to repair their project jukes...real parts are hard to come by so often times a disassembled machine can fetch 2-3 times of what you would get for the machine as is. We live in a weird world!

I have a 1969 Seeburg jukebox, the body could use some TLC. I'd say it's in fair condition. It works fine.

Depending on the model, they can be worth thousands of dollars. Check eBay frequently to see what the asking price of yours is, and if it sold.

Hi. Could you please post photos and show what the flaws are that you mean by it needing some TLC?

Does it work?

Does it include the records and if so do they all play without skipping? What are the records (a sample of titles or genre of music)?

Is it all original (meaning never repaired or rewired/no after market replacement parts)?

Do you have the manual?

Was it in a bar/restaurant/club and now smells like smoke or cooking oil/grease? (This can make it very difficult to sell in any condition--unless you find another bar/restaurant/club to sell it to).

Selling jukes is one of the items in the resale world that is very challenging to value and sell because there are so many variables. Generally I tell sellers once they have a value to start high and take best offer, but the starting point is the critical piece.

With a little more info (and where you are located also), I may be able to get you pointed in the right direction to value it and find the best venue to sell it.

As an aside, if the item is in truly poor shape but otherwise works and you are super handy, there is a market for the parts if you can take it apart and show that the pieces work AND if they are all original to the item (not aftermarket).

eBay in particular has a whole section of sold auctions for parts for juke boxes. In some cases, jukes are worth more for parts than as a whole.

Looking forward to more info so we can see if we can get you in the right direction for value/how to best sell.
